  1. My mother (b. 1941) used to learn and perform traditional Japanese dance, wearing Yuzen Kimono her father made not far from Uzumasa filming studio in Kyoto. She would have been 12 years old when these photos of dancing girls were taken. My mother’s eldest sister has also lived in Kitano but it would be very difficult to identify these girls especially with make-up!

      私の母(1941年生まれ)は、京都の太秦撮影所の近くで、自分の父親が作った友禅の着物を着て、日本舞踊を習っていました。この写真が撮られた時、母は12歳だったと思います。私の母の姉も北野に住んでいたことがありますが、お化粧をしている彼女たちを特定するのはとてもに難しいです!

  2. Wakunakuni さんからFBにて、下記のメッセージを頂きました:
    北野会館とは現在の上七軒歌舞練場のことだそうです。上七軒とは芸妓とお茶屋の街、歌舞練場は舞踊の為の劇場施設らしいのですが、(確認したところ)昭和28年9月に舞台をした記録が無いそうなので、会場を貸出しただけの可能性が。

    We received the following message from Wakunakuni on FB:
    Kitano Kaikan is said to be the current Kamishichiken Kaburenjo (Song and Dance Practice Hall). Kamishichiken is a town of geiko and teahouses (in Kyoto), and the Song and Dance Practice Hall is a theater facility for dancers. (Checked) but there is no record of a stage performance in September 1953, so it is possible that the venue was just rented out.

  3. The handwriting appears the same as the writing on photo no 183.

    183番の写真の裏に書かれた文字と同じ直筆のようです。
